MIAN Manila Marriott Grand Ballroom – When you are in a 5-star hotel (with a grand ballroom), one of the best things that makes an awesome experience is dining. With Marriott, it’s great that there’s a lot of options you can choose from depending on what type of food you are craving for. One of which is Mian Manila Marriott Hotel
MIAN Manila Marriott Hotel
Mian is a contemporary Asian noodle bar that offers a tasteful and exclusive line of noodle dishes prepared in an open kitchen.
It is so spacious and you can choose what type of dining settings you prefer:
Fastfood style of dining
Sofa style and private type of dining:
Coffee bar style
What we picked?
Of course, dining is always a sound way of bonding with my family, so we chose that corner where we will have some privacy and be more comfy:
Upon seating, we were welcomed with glasses of refreshing cold water, healthily served with slices of lemons.
The place is clean and cold, but you will be warmed with accommodating, attentive staff and personnel. (Thank you to Marriott Grand Ballroom Restaurants Manager Miss Tricia De Lagman for a quick chat, I could have been an ex-beauty titlist now if I have known what you’ve shared :P).
We didn’t realize that Mian Manila Marriott has a self-pick up counter since their staff took our orders and served our food right there on our table.
Now, prepare your tummy as I present to you some of Mian’s delectable platter selections that we tried and I bet after reading this you’ll be grabbing your car to dine there asap!
Shrimp Lumpia Sariwa Php 195.00
I’m fond of Lumpia Sariwa and I’m very particular about the dressing whenever I eat those rolls. Mian just met my expectation because I don’t want anything salty–dips, sauces, etc. Not only the rolls were freshly served but the peanut toppings from the dressing as well.
Sausage Empanada Php 195.00
Filled with local sausage and boiled egg, I didn’t expect I will find one of the best-tasting empanada in the metro. Why? Though it has sausage fillings, it’s not salty. The empanada crust is crunchy and take note, it’s not oily huh!
Chef’s Beef Noodles Php 395.00
This beef noodles is not just comforting, it’s heavy in the tummy! Generously served with slow braised beef, fresh coriander and bean sprouts. The rice noodle was served al dente. The sauce compliments the noodle soup with its just-right spicy flavor without hurting my taste buds.
The kids tried these rice bowls:
Pork Adobo Php 325.00
It’s the classic Filipino Pork Adobo with a twist: instead of just plain boiled eggs, they replaced it with crispy fried quail eggs (kwek-kwek in street foods), pickled veggies. The serving is actually too much for her but she really don’t want to let it go, so she asked if we could take her Pork Adobo rice bowl at home. And we did hahah!
Beef Caldereta 395.00
I’m not very fond of beef, but Mian’s Beef Caldereta is really not just worth trying, but indeed worth having it again!
Braised Pork Belly Php 375.00
This handcrafted udon noodles is Mian’s bestseller! Served generously with braised pork belly cubes and crunchy pickled vegetables, you should not dine there without having this mouthwatering dish.
Mango pudding PHP 120.00
Another awesome twist was done by Manila Marriott Hotel Chef with this yummy mango pudding dessert. Instead of just tapioca and mango, bits of pomelo as toppings for each serving were added.
Mango Strawberry Iced Tea Php 180.00
Mixed with fresh mango and strawberry puree, this iced tea will indeed refresh you:
Green Tea Php 180.00
I’m always having a hard time finishing my cup of hot green tea at home but with this, I hope I could also create my own version.
